Broadband is critical for unlocking the lockdown

The global crisis created by COVID-19 will have a profound and long-lasting impact. Broadband has played a vital role during this crisis as people work, study and shop from home. These changes in digital behavior have had a seismic effect on our networks. Until now, broadband operators have been using growth models that predicted a gradual increase in bandwidth demand of 30-40% over the next 3 or 4 years. COVID-19 has generated 30-40% growth overnight. We’ve seen huge spikes in usage across online gaming, VPN, streaming services, social media and video conferencing, to name a few.
